220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0106 Corporate Stock Transfers. If a group of people acting individually purchase all of the stock of a corporation, a change in ownership does not occur unless one person obtains more than a fifty percent interest in or control of the corporation. Likewise, a subsequent conversion of the stock to a greater number of shares or a change in the designation given to the new issue(s) does not result in a change of ownership if there is no change in the voting rights attached to the old and new shares. The conversion would qualify as a reorganization.
Neither a change in the state of incorporation from Nevada to California accomplished by a statutory merger into a California corporation formed for the purpose nor a subsequent merger of the California corporation into a wholly owned subsidiary corporation followed by a corporate name change constitute a change in ownership if there is no change in control. C 9/22/1989.
